Do I need an emergency dentist in Armadale?
When it comes to oral health, we have a general rule at Dental Care Group: if it hurts, it’s an emergency!
Even something as small as a chipped tooth can have severe consequences on your oral health if it’s not treated quickly or properly.
Many of our patients opt to ignore their dental pain. They conclude that since their pain isn’t life-threatening, a that a “wait-and-see” approach is better than seeking an emergency dentist.
In fact, many don’t consider it a dental emergency unless the tooth has been knocked out!
An unexpected dental pain is more than an annoyance. While the pain might be tolerable now, if left untreated, it can turn into a major problem.
For example, a minor chip has the potential to lead to tooth infections and even complete loss of the affected tooth!
Dental Care Group offers immediate treatment options that alleviate your pain and fix whatever trouble your teeth are giving you – book an emergency appointment or contact us anytime for immediate support and advice
When the hard enamel exterior of your teeth is damaged or broken, the sensitive nerves inside your tooth are completely exposed.
This can result in unbearable tooth pain, especially when chewing food.
Additionally, it also exposes the insides of your teeth to infection, which can rot the insides of your teeth until they fall out completely.
Broken and chipped teeth can be the result of falling, biting into hard objects, or untreated tooth decay.
Whatever the cause, visit your local dentist ASAP for appropriate treatment, which may include a filling or root canal to repair the damage.
Are you experiencing pain in or around your teeth?
A broken tooth is just one potential cause of tooth pain.
Other key suspects include tooth decay, plaque, or infection.
Your teeth are filled with highly sensitive nerve endings. While these nerves are normally protected by the enamel of your teeth, tooth decay wears away this outer layer, exposing the insides.
The result is a toothache.
Whatever the cause, drop by our dental clinic in Armadale to have your toothache looked at.
Trust our experienced team of professionals to prescribe a treatment that gets to the heart of your tooth pain.
If you don’t follow a proper dental hygiene routine, you may start experiencing bleeding gums. Gum inflammation and bleeding are also an early symptom of gum disease.
It mightn’t sound as urgent, but untreated gum disease can eventually lead to the loss of teeth. The gums hold your teeth in place, and gum disease weakens these gums. The result is a higher risk of tooth loss.
Gum health is also directly related to overall health.
Gum disease is common but preventable through effective dental hygiene. Our experienced team will be able to diagnose gum disease and prescribe treatments to relieve your symptoms and resolve your gum issues.
Your wisdom teeth erupting are almost a rite of passage!
More often than not, they’re also a cause of major dental pains.
As such, wisdom tooth removal is one of the most common dental treatments, with approximately 85% of adults needing work on their wisdom teeth at one stage or another!
Wisdom teeth cause pain when they grow incorrectly.
This is a common occurrence, as most human jaws simply don’t have the space to accommodate them without impacting on existing teeth.
They can also be difficult to brush and floss properly, leading to infection. We recommend removing your wisdom teeth sooner rather than later if they are causing you issues.
